Sunday photoblogging: Nunney Castle

by Chris Bertram on February 19, 2023

Always nice to discover something close to home that you were previously unaware of, in this case Nunney Castle, built around 1370 and destroyed nearly 300 years later during the Civil Wars.

Rob Walker lived in Nunney Castle. He was a race team owner, and for many years the F1 correspondent for the US’s “Road & Track” magazine, which made me a lover of cars and somewhat of an Anglophile. He was also a 5th generation direct descendant of Johnny Walker of whiskey fame.

@DavidtheK, he may have owned it and lived nearby, but nobody could live in it. There’s not been a roof since the 17th century!

Beautiful structure. Thanks for sharing a great photo of it.

David Balfour walked, and almost died, on a rickety stone stairway spiraling up the inner walls of a turret just like one of those!

As Shakespeare said, get thee to Nunney, or something to that effect.
